Could this year be the year that Team Ico's mythical The Last Guardian finally gets its public showing? Maybe, just maybe.
Don't tease me like this.
Not getting hopes up. Never again will I fall for this. When there's something tangible shown with a legit release date and live on stage demo - I'll be pumped again.
This is pretty much everything that took place in the thread. http://m.neogaf.com/showpos... Plus Zoetis has said they have something this holiday to counter Halo, which Demonite responded to. Demonite is legit as it gets. He, Verendus and Gopher D work for Sony. Verendus has been dropping some bombs regarding E3 lately as well. I'm wondering if Sony Bend's game is the sequel to TLOU.
@Transistor Gopher in another thread also said that new colors will appear (blue and orange) and not only brown...are these people legit?? ..because this is a clear reference to Crash bandicoot..if he is from Sony
Here are Verendus's E3 teases http://m.neogaf.com/showpos... http://m.neogaf.com/showpos... http://m.neogaf.com/showpos... Here is GopherD's http://m.neogaf.com/showpos... These are definitely spoilers, so if you like surprises don't click them. E3 is going to be great.
So tempting to get excited though!
Some speculation on my part, but interesting regardless. The imgur file DemonNite posted in response to TLG ends with "zU3hoVx" http://i.imgur.com/zU3hoVx.... "HoVx" could be short for Holiday 15.
what happened to agent? from rockstar
@1.1.1 They're gonna need something massive to counter Halo. That's one of the largest IPs currently within the gaming landscape.
^ You're making me laugh about what you said about Halo. Halo is slightly more than relevant. It hasn't been a system flagship title since 2007.
Last year the Halo series sold it's 60 millionth copy... Halo 4 made $300mil in it's first week. Slightly more than relevant.
1 thing is a certainty, if even a single frame is shown on screen at E3 relating to TLG the place will erupt like a dormant volcano.
I'm pretty sure it won't be at E3 - the Tokyo Games show is a more appropriate venue for such an announcement... Colossus and Ico were both announced there, plus the Devs are Japanese.
TLG was revealed at E3 tho......
This is really only true about games that are thought to do better in Japan than the US/Europe (also, Colossus and ICO came out 10+ years ago). The Last Guardian has a pretty strong fan expectation and longing. E3 gets far more viewers and attention than TGS, so for a game with the recognition and borderline mythos, at this point, as TLG, I see E3 as being the most likely place for a re-reveal. That being said, I don't plan on getting my hopes up either, as there are plenty of other games that could be "the big reveal" at E3 this year.
@Minato - Yeah, my bad. I forgot it was already officially revealed... though - to be fair - that was some time ago. @Myze - I'm suprised that's the case - you'd think these games would do especially well in Japan... although that might go a ways to explaining why the Last Guardian has taken so long - along with the various restarts, devs coming and going, the long stretches of silence and the lack of info regarding the game's direction. Still, I'd have thought there would've been a bit more urgency, with regards to the international market... I guess they have a reputation to uphold (after all, Ico was supposed to be a PS1 game) - which is fine - they're yet to release a bad game, and at this point, they might as well just take their time and do it right.
If it's released at e3 I'll go buy another ps4, even though I promised to wait for a hardware revision. Just for the sheer pomp of it all I would enjoy seeing that game blow up with ratings, buys and media attention.
I have to ask. Why exactly would you buy another PS4?
@deathtok If he has money to burn, why not?
I have two ps4s ^ upstairs & downstairs ... Why not? lol
Vaporware, plain and simple. It's sad seeing all these fans get excited year after year. It was just a trailer, let it go.
The president of SCE confirmed that it's still in production, there's more reason to believe it's coming than that it's "vaporware".
Yeah, I remember that. But words are just words until backed by action. How long has it been since he said that? Hasn't there been enough time to show something? Anything? So, yeah, vaporware.
Tge studio japan team was tied up with puppeteer, knack, and GT6 until the end of 2013. After that Ueda most likely got a team, so its probably been in full production for a good 18 to 20 months now.
Vapour Ware like the game announces by black tusk... Only to be scrapped? Like Phantom dust where the team got shut down? Is that still coming? What reason is there to not confirm cancellation of TLG? None
Not really, the game has been confirmed to still be in development and the game might have shifted from PS3 to PS4 as many might already be assuming. Mind you...Ico met the same fate, it was originally going to release on the PS1. If TLG was canned, I think they would have stated so long ago as suppose to carrying on trolling as that sorta hurts them in the end, not help them. ie.....trust. Its sorta the same reason why most sit back and wait when MS announced some 3rd party exclusive....I mean if we trust the past, then we know we'll see it on PC and or PS later 6 months to year down the line (some times on both). So...why would Sony want to begin losing trust when they announce a game? So folks start believing they are just trolling? or worse, falsely advertising a game that has no intention to ever release as to stir up sales for PS4? I mean...you clearly can see how repeating actions over and over again can create this idea about a company right? I hate to use that timed exclusive junk about MS but I think we all sorta get that idea.
Hey, Doritos! Don't pee in my Cheerios!
I came in here saw thegamescabin and thought it would just be an article about nothing. After seeing this neogaf conversation I'm actually starting to get excited here. It looks like it could be happening. Wooo hooo. @Transister. SWeeeet!
It's happening. http://m.neogaf.com/showpos...
Trasistor, Please stop posting things from Neogaf as all their insiders like Tidux and cboat were exposed as frauds. This Demonite cat is no different.
Don't show it if it's not coming out within a year. I was really looking forward to this game when Sony first showed it, but now every time I see news for it I think yea right... So put up or shut up.
I agree. Knowing about games more than a year out does some damage on both ends of the gaming spectrum. Hype can get too big and gamers get disappointed when its delayed. Or end up showing too much of the game to keep the gamers interested and talking about it during the long stretch of time, and then when the game comes out its underwhelming because we have seen most of it already. Heck, its ludicrous how FFvs13/15 has been announced 9 years ago.
you said toward the stripper
We say that every year. Until the year comes where its actually shown, we will continue saying that.
It worked for KHIII and FF XV...
I cant express my feeling on how i felt when KH3 trailer popped at E3. It was a mix of a manly tear and screams. Only a few games can do that to me.
@DarkOcelet manly tear and girly screams here also...Wait I didn't tell everyone that did I?
Please let it be true.
I've actually honestly got grey hair now, not a lot just few strands hear and there, when TLG was first announced I didn't By the time TLG is out I bet i'll have a head as grey as Steve Martin
Same here, but the sm reference they won't get. Skewing to old for "one wild and crazy guy."
Actually quite a few of us are older, though I honestly don't have any grey yet black, brown, blonde and red sure but not any grey yet.Here's hoping I still don't by the time we get this game.
I'm not expecting anything. They'll show it when they're ready.
Team Ico wont release anything that is not legendary. When they start showing it then we will know its time.
This kept getting posted yesterday, i don't read Japanese so i don't know what it says but there is a date 2015. i know a lot of people will be excited about this news and i am interested in seeing more of this game. @mezati99 Oh was it, well thats a shame.
this was fan made from neogaf buddy
He ain't your buddy guy ;)
He ain't your guy buddy. (sorry someone had to leaving a joke unfinished is just wrong)
I'm not your guy Friend. :)
I'm not your friend, pal! Bennigan's gift cards for all!
I'm all your friends and your all me.........ASSIMILATE!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!
Why can't you all just shut up about it. Why not let it be a freakin major surprise instead ruining the thing/give false hope. Insiders have been quiet for ages and suddenly they pop up just before E3?? Sounds attention grabby to me.
i think they will show it with a teaser just to let people know the game does exist after last year's cancellation rumor. TLG will be at this year's E3.
The screen will go black, the words "Team ICO" appear, and... That's it. end of teaser trailer.
You guys said that last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, and the year before that...you get the point.
How many strikes do these so-called "insiders" get? Oust the wrong ones or don't waste my time.
haven't they been saying this for pretty much the last 5 years?
If this game ends up being shown at E3 then the Internet might implode. Likewise if it's cancelled!
Honestly..... Is the following that big? I didn't get in on the original release of the previous two, I picked them up after I got my ps3.
Half life 3 confirmed!
If not this game, I just want to play something new from Team Ico. I love the last two games!
For the past couple of years, a very similair article would pop up around this time of year about The Last Guardian. Don't believe it, not until it's literally there on my screen with a release date.
If so, the internet will break.
Plot twist : Kojima left konami because he is secretly involves in the last guardian project LOL.
if true then Sony wins e3 hands down. nothing can be shown on any other platform including pc that could top the last guardian.
Errr Half Life 3 my friend, HALF LIFE 3!!!
If sony announce Last Guardian, they could have hairy old men in tutus dancing on stage for the rest of the show, and they would still win E3
Not with Scalebound, Quantum Break, Halo 5, or Gears 4 being at E3 also
There's every chance it could be an average game. You know next to nothing about the game, other than its had a painful development cycle (which isn't always a good thing)
True. But that's just what we do, we follow hope (see Scalebound & Phantom Dust for example). I gotta believe!
All us Team ICO fans hope that deep down. Much like Half-life 3, I've grown to stop expecting.
